Post-Christmas Fun

Shortly before Christmas, when I thought my shopping was complete, I was visiting the Bake at 350 blog and read a post featuring this cake pop set.
I knew that my granddaughter "needed" one -- and, truth be told, I wanted to play with it, too!  So, I got online and found one at our Toys R Us.  I ordered it for store pickup and stopped by on my way to work early the next morning.  The day after Christmas, we baked a cake mix and got busy making the pops.  Here is Eleanor, in her cupcake PJs, shaping the balls of cake mixed with icing.

 The set comes with everything you need -- the tray for chilling the cake balls before shaping them, the little molds in four shapes, and the mixing and dipping bowls. 
I failed to get photos of the dipping stage, but here are the finished snowmen faces and Christmas trees. 
 The set also comes with a tray with little holes for holding the pops while the candy coating dries -- very handy!
I think Miss E had as much fun making them as I did!


  1. Your granddaughter is adorable!! She made some great cake pops too. One of my friends just posted pictures of her daughter using her new cake pop gift today as well! Looks like a lot of fun!! Might need to get one for Lucie!

  2. Cakeballs are always such a great dessert. My DIL makes them quite often. I think that the set that you bought looks great, and your granddaughter is absolutely darling! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Happy New Year! Cherry Kay

  3. Looks like the perfect gift. My niece makes cake pops frequently. Your little grand is precious. Happy New Year! ~ Sarah
